While curb appeal is undoubtedly a huge factor when it comes to getting a good price for your home, keeping your house and landscaping neat and in good repair also shows pride of ownership, contributes to the beauty of the neighborhood and can even deter criminals. Many curb appeal projects are quick, easy and relatively inexpensive. Try out one of these ideas shared by the leading roofing contractor in the Columbus area, Muth & Company Roofing, the next time you have a free weekend!
- Upgrade your mailbox. One of the easiest and least expensive ways to add curb appeal to your home is to install a new mailbox. A basic mailbox costs a mere $20 and can be installed in no time, or you can upgrade with a brick or stone column that displays your house numbers.
- Freshen things up with paint. A fresh coat of paint or stain can do wonders for a dingy fence or porch, or you could choose to make a statement with a bold new paint color to instantly perk up a tired entry door. Even cleaning and painting your door and window trim can serve to give your home’s facade a facelift.
- Display window boxes and planters. Window boxes full of brightly colored flowers and planters of lush plants and decorative grasses will bring a burst of color and life to your property, and as well as provide a warm welcome for your guests.
- Install solar lighting. Another quick and inexpensive upgrade that will increase your home’s curb appeal is the installation of solar lighting. The lights themselves range from elegant to whimsical, and will not only provide illumination for steps and walkways, but can also be used to spotlight distinctive architectural features or landscape elements.
